Fiscal policy, poverty and inequality worldwide

Guest lecturer Jon Jellema (Commitment to Equity program, Tulane University, USA) will present the methodology and the conceptual framework supporting the Commitment to Equity (CEQ) Assessment fiscal incidence analysis as well as review highlights from the cross-country evidence available in the accumulated and in-progress CEQ Assessments at the CEQ Institute.  The lecture will demonstrate how, with a relatively lightweight dataset, empirically-driven, micro estimates of the impact of fiscal policy on poverty, inequality, and social welfare more generally can be generated in a consistent, comparable manner with complete internal and external validity.
